WHY


Day 1: Tangier – Chefchaouen

We will welcome you to Morocco at the ferry terminal or airport. After our greeting, we will travel to visit the city of Tangier. This famous gateway from Spain is lovely town with beautiful beaches and old town (Medina). We will also ensure that we visit the Caves of Hercules, where you will find a window that strangely resembles the continent of Africa which peeks out to the sea. Nearby the caves, we can also view the lovely lighthouse at the Spartel Cap, a point known for where the Mediterranean sea meets the Atlantic ocean. Then after our visit, we will travel across the Riff Mountains to Chefchaouen.

Accommodations: Overnight stay in Chefchaouen with breakfast in the morning

Day 2: Chefchaouen

The city nestled in the Riff Mountains, is famous for its Andalusian character and for its extraordinary light and color. The old town Medina's houses are all whitewashed and tinted with different shades of blue colors. It is captivating to walk through the old town grasping the different colors. We will spend the day exploring the city.

Day 3: Chefchaouen – Volubilis – Meknes - Fes

We will depart in the morning to Volubilis, which is set about 3 hours from Chefchaouen. Volubilis is Roman ruin site worth your visit. The drama of this scene and the span of the ruins are undeniably impressive. Stroll along the ruins alone or with guide, who is available for hire at the entrance and view the old homes and their fantastic mosaic work. Then after our visit, we will follow the road to the once capital city Meknes. Here we will view some of the historical sights built by the Sultan Moulay Ismail during his 55 years of ruling. Then onward to Fes.

Accommodations: Overnight stay in Fes with breakfast in the morning

Day 4: Fes El Bali

Fes, the most ancient and completed of the medieval Imperial Cities in the whole Arab world is an adventure of itself. The Medina in Fes will incite all your senses from smell to sounds. There is still a good quarter of inhabitants living in the old city – Fes El Bali that still looks very much as it did during the Middle ages. Perhaps the only sights that reminds us of today’s world is electricity, satellite dishes, and tourists. As it did in the past, this city still dominates in trade, culture, and religious life today. Explore the winding alleyways, old schools, and important trades on a guided walking tour of the city.
